National Fire Situation Report

Jul 20, 2021 3:20pm, CT
Level 5
National mobilization is heavily committed and increased measures need to be taken to support agencies. Active agencies may take emergency measures to sustain incident operations. Inactive/low activity agencies are at drawdown levels.
  • Full commitment of national resources is ongoing.
  • Demand for interagency resources through CIFFC is extreme.
  • National availability of resources is limited, international resources are being mobilized.
  • Potential for emerging significant wildland fires is high to extreme and expected to remain so in one or multiple agencies.
Data provided based on information collected from agencies. Accuracy varies based on individual agency practices, but is typically considered to be rough estimates for daily operations. Final quality control is performed post-season and compiled in other publications.
